His vnutii was passed amidst scenes of
military »\xc tement in his native land,
and, in lbOS, he joined the Spanish ar
my to fijjht ajjninst the French, obtaining
soon after a commission. This he resign
ed in Hll, but embarked, under Gen.
Moriila, as a Captain in the Spanish ar
my lor South America, in 181-3, where he
continued until the complete failure ol
the war against the revolted provinces.—
He then returned, in 1824 to Spain,
where he was made a Brigadier Gener
al. We do not kiintv that his bravery
was ever doubted but the history of his
private lile, during the nine years ol his
absence from home, is said to have beeo
more than discreditable.
His next appearance on the public stage
was in favor Christina, the present
Queen Mother, who will shortly be tried
for her crime* under his government.—
Oa the death of Kerdiuantl VII. his
brother Carlos claimed the throne
in virtue of the Sai.que ltt»v, tv..Ic.» ex
eludes femaie:i from the suceession to the
throne. Isabella, however, the daughter
ot Ferdinand, was maintained by her
mother to be the true Queen of Spain, on
the ground that the Bourbon dynasty on
the Spanish throne, was bound only by
Span'Mi, not French laws and customs,
aud that the Salique law appertained ex
clusively to France—and not to Spain.
Espartero sided with Christinia, who
was made Queen Regent, repelled the
insurgent Carlists from Madrid iu 1S'J6,
and was created Commander-in-Chief oi
the forces of the North, and Viceroy ol
Navarre.
Aided from abroad, with popular feel
ing and justice in his favor, he was abit:
to render much service against the badly
but bravely led Carlists, arid, in 1S'}7
performed Ins great lent ..•{ dr.ving the:i:
over the Ehro. In 1839, he was created
a Grandee of the First Class, and receiv
ed the title of Duke of Vittoria. Don
Curios left Spain, and in IS 10 Kspartero
crushed the remains of the Cat list [acti in
under Cabrera. In consequence of the
persistants of Christinia in passing a
law circumscribing the liberties ot the
Spanish municipalities, an insurrection
broke out which ol-liged her to abdicate,
•aid, in May 13-11, Espartero was pro
claimed by the Cones, Regent of Spain.
The plots against his authority are wel
kno.vn. Espartero was, during his Re
gency, the ent re and unprincipled tool ol
the English government, end as sue',
lost the confidence of the people^ and ti
respect of the nobies. Both O'Donnei
and Concha with whom he is now a'he
conspired against him. Finally, in 1S13,
Narvaez succeeded in driving him lroni
Spam His power and influence had so
entirely ceased, that his absence wa.«
scarcely noticed, and his return uneared
for and unfclt. He seemed to have sunk
into contempt. A new aad uuexpetio
mm oi' fortune has, however, brought

suiting from a criminally careless use of
fire arms. On Sunday night, Daniel
M- Arthur was sitting in the same room
i\K,t 314 Seventh street, with Catharine
Desmond, a young lady to whom he was
engaged. Catharine was sitting at a
small stand, reading a book, and her lov

extinguishing the candle. Finally, all
his fond efforts having failed, he took a

The uilowing extract oi a »«iier frtMna
Yankee correspondent of the Gelveston
New# is highly amusing.
Well, 1 put up with a first rate good
natured fellow that I met at a billiard
table. I went in and was introduced to
his wife, a fine, fat woman—looked as
though she lived on iaffin', her face was
so full of fun. After a while—after we
hail talked about my giri, and about the
jnrden, and about the weather, in come
three or four children, lartin, andakippin
as mcrr^P ns erirtcets. There was no
andle lit, bnt I could see they w»-re fine
looking fellows, and I started lor my sad
dle hag in which I ha !*put a &t of sugar
an ly lor the children as I went along
•Come here' said 1 'you little rogue,
and tell me what your name is.'
The oldest came to me andsaM 'My
name's l'eter Smith.'
'An«l what's your name!'
'Bob Smith."
The next said his name wa» Bill Smith
and the fourth said his name was Tom
my Smith. I gave 'em sugar candy, and
old Mrs. Smith was so tickled that she
laughed all the time. Mr. Smith looked
on but didn't say much.
."V Why,' says I, 'I wouldn't take a good
deal for them four, boys, if 1 had V'"
they are so beautiful and sprightly.
No,' said she, laughing, 'I set a good
deal on 'eiu but we spoil 'em too mucit.'
No,' says I, 'they,re r^'e well behaved
children and be gracious' suy* I, preten
ding to be startled by a striking resein
blame bet ween the boys and the father,
and 1 looked at Mr. Smith. I never did
see anything equal to it.' says 1, 'your
eyes, mouth, forehead, and perfect pic
ture of hair, sir,'tapping the oldest on
the pate. 1 thought Mrs. Smith would
have died a laffm, at that, her arms fell
down by her snlej and she shook the whole
house a luff in.
'Do you think so, Col. Jones?' sad she,
looking towards Mr Smith, and I thought
she'd go off in a fit.
'Yes,' said I, 1 do railly.*
'Ha, ha, huw!' says Mr. Smith, kind o'
half Iaffin, 'yon are too hard on me now,
with your jokes.'
1
'I aii:t joking atall,' says I,'they are
handsome children and do look wonder
fully like you.'
Just then a gal brought in a light, and
I'll be darned if the little brats didn't turn
out to be niggers-everv one ou'em! and
their hair was as curly as the blackest
nuger's Mr. and Mrs. Smith never
hail any chid re n, and they sort of petted
them niggers as playthings.
I never felt as streaked as I did when
I found out how things stood, li 1 hadn'
kissed the nasty things, I could got over
i! but kissing 'em showed 1 was iu ear
nest. Though I was soft soapiu 'em all
the while, w to get over the scrape 1
didn't know. Mrs. Smith laughed so
hard when she saw how confuted 1 was
that she almost suffocated.
A little alter a ai ds, there wa» a whole
family of relations arrived from the city
and turned the matter ufl but the next
morning I could see that Mr. Smith did
not like the remembrance of what 1 had
said, and I don't believe he'll vote for me
when the election comen. I 'spect Mrs.
Smith kept the old fellow under the joke
for some time.
A Family Killed.
A correspondent of the Detroit Free
Prm, writing from Pecatonica, Winne
bago county,III., on the 14th inst., says:
I witnessed, yesterday, one of the most
melancholy scenes I ever beheld. In the
town of Lvsander, one mile south of Pe
catonica depot, there lay enshrined in five
coffins a Mr. Merchant, two sons and
two daughters, all of whom were struck
with lightning during a thunder shower,
about a o'clock A M. leaving in the
family oniy the wife and one san about
8 years old they both being much in
jured by the shock, the woman remaining
mentally deranged, continually bemoan
lug the loss of her family. The circum
stances of-their deaths ought to be a cau
tion to the public to manage differently
from what they did. Tuo night being
very warm, they took off mcir beds and
placed them on the floor in a cool room,
where stood a stove, and the lightning,
coming down the stove pipe, divided on
the stove hearth, and struck the whole
family of seven, of whom only t*o sur­
vived.

THE CANAL.—This great work pro

state of forwardness and the lower aud
most important one is fairly under way.
Sock Stone are comiug forward from
Diuuimoiid's Island and Marble Head
about ua as they cau be used.
The banks or sides of tho canal are
about one fourth walled up and a very
large number of men are on this branch
of the business and on the work of exca
vation. We noticed yesterday six horse
drills in operation and tho blasting is
carried ou with energy. But the stone,
near the head of the Portage or Canal is
hard and the excavating, in that viciuity,
cannot be pushed so fast as it has in
other places, and besides, the water be
gins already to trouble them, aud we
noticed a two-howe pump at work, at
the upper extremity, where the water
from the Lake has to force itself through
a wide, unbroken wall^of saud stoue.—
